I am a working wife & grandmother of 5. Love cooking, entertaining & most of all CHRISTMAS. As soon as Halloween is over I start planning for the upcoming holidays. My decorating starts almost immediately & cooking doesn't really stop til January 2.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite things to cook would probably be desserts of all kinds. My 12 yr old grandson (Christopher) & 3 yr old granddaughter (Graci)love to help me in the kitchen. I do love to try new recipes on my family. Anything you can fix in a slow cooker is my friend too.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Since I work Monday thru Friday - I always try to fix a big breakfast on Saturday - most of my family & extended family shows up. Thanksgiving evening is spent with my sisters over dessert & coffee. I always have Christmas Eve at my house for everybody & cooking is one of the main things. They all look forward to something I have fixed NEW.
My cooking triumphs
Not sure I have any triumphs - my family always says it's good & comes back for more. That's triumph enough, I guess.
My cooking tragedies
The cooking tragedy I try to forget is my first CHERRY PIE (age 14)& DRESSING (age 21). My pie needed a crow bar to get out of the dish & my dressing was only fit for the garbage - where it went.
